Under the guidance of Prof. Claudio Manfredotti, the Solid State Physics group of the University of Torino, Physics Department,started its activity in the early 1980s in the field of amorphous (a-Si:H) and crystalline (e.g. Si, CdTe) semiconductor materials, mainly for the fabrication of solar cells and ionization radiation detectors.
In the course of these three decades, the group has gradually extended its field of interest to the study of micro/nano-structured materials and devices and to the development of new experimental techniques for the characterization and modification of advanced materials and/or art objects.
Now, the group is working on the following main research topics:

Aula Magna, Dipartimento di Fisica, via P. Giuria 1, Torino


Leipzig University (D)
Ion Implantation Technologies for Fabrication of Quantum Systems

1-3 april 2019
Our research group actively collaborates to the organization of the "Ion Beams for Future Technologies 2019" workshop, which will be held at the "Dubrovnik International University Center (HR). The workshop is aimed discuss new applications of focused ion beams or single ion irradiation, which could play a crucial role in emerging future technologies. It is expected that the workshop could result in new collaborations and new project proposals, including those within the scope of European Union research funding possibilities.
26 may - 1 june 2019
Our research group actively collaborates to the organization of the "Quantum2019" conference ("From Foundations of Quantum Mechanics to Quantum Information and Quantum Metrology & Sensing"), which will be held from the 26th of May to the 1st of June 2019 at the "Cavallerizza Reale" complex of the University of Torino. In particular, the conference will include a broad spectrum of contributions on diamond-based quantum technologies from internationally recognized speakers. For information, contact
